The Olympics are over, y'all. All the medals have been handed out, all the scandals have been obsessed over and all the tears have been shed. It's time to move on from sports and move on to…well, what's there to watch on TV now?

There is a weird lull between the end of the Olympics and the official start of the new season, but we've managed to pick out a list of shows on the air right now that you can watch to bridge that gap before fall TV kicks in. And we think we found something for every boob tube fan. 

How did the Olympics do in the ratings?

Boss, Starz: Kelsey Grammer returns in his Golden Globe-winning role for a new season of the Starz drama. Oh, and Jonathan Groff is here, too. So that fact alone makes this show a must-see.

America's Next Top Model: College Edition, The CW: Smile with your eyes and tune in on Aug. 24 to the 19th cycle of ANTM. This time it's all college girls who will be facing Tyra Banks' criticisms, and there's a whole new judging panel.

Grimm, NBC: One of the few freshman series to make it out of NBC's fall last year, Grimm returns with more fairytale action tonight!  

Keri Russell is returning to TV in a new FX drama

Hell on Wheels, AMC: You can't watch sweaty men run around winning gold medals anymore, but you can watch hot men sweat while working on the railroad. The second season just kicked off, so join in on our Anson Mount fan club!

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, TLC: Yes, it's a hot mess of a show at best, but you can't look away. So why should you? This family pretty much confirms the world is ending this year, so might as well enjoy it while it lasts!

Married to Jonas, E! If a reality show following the daily lives of a famous married couple is your cup of tea, then take a big sip of Married to Jonas when it debuts on August 19. And with this show, you get all three of the Jonas Brothers. What a deal! 

U.S. Women's soccer team did us real proud in these Olympics

Shark Week, Discovery: It's one of the greatest weeks of the year: Shark Week! It launched on Sunday, and there's so much good toothy coverage it's like the Shark Olympics!

Stars Earn Stripes, NBC: Who doesn't want to see the likes of Dean Cain and Nick Lachey lose their s--t in faux, but still intense, military situations?

Teen Wolf, MTV: The finale of Teen Wolf's awesome second season is tonight, which means you have less than 12 hours to catch up on the previous episodes. What are you waiting for? It's totally worth it!  

Michael Phelps was getting action out of the Olympic pool

The Glee Project, Oxygen: If you can't wait for Glee to start, then you might want to catch the finale of The Glee Project on Aug. 14. The winner of this season gets a nice guest role on the new season of the Fox musical hit.

True Blood, HBO: There are only two episodes left in True Blood's fifth season, but they will be big ones. Don't miss a moment!
